Conversations With Les – Part One

So 2020 is upon us and I am up and ready for a new year….just about!  One of my main goals for this year is to build on my mediumship development.  Yesterday, I had a client for practice, and I wasn’t happy with the outcome, even though the mediumship was ok, I am still and will always be very hard on myself.

It’s unbelievable that I can have two days of practicing that can literally go from one extreme to the other.  Today I sat for one of my friends, who I always feel very relaxed in front of (this helps!).  Her dad, Les, died when my friend was 17 years old, I didn’t know her then, so he is great to practice with.  Whenever I have sat for my friend to read and connected with Les, he has given me fantastic evidence from spirit, and he always describes the other side in detail to me, which gives us good insight into what it is like over there.  Today’s sitting was no different.

As I tuned to him, I saw Les, with stubbly chin, leaning against a moped, arms folded casually, waiting for my friend and I to stop chatting.  When I told my friend this, she got really excited “he was always stubbly and he used to drive a moped!” she said, “Well it looks like he still has one now”, I tell her.

Suddenly, Les is throwing information at me left, right and centre.  He is very easy to connect with as his energy is light, enthusiastic and vibrant.  He is telling me a few things that make sense to Helen, as well as some other bits she wouldn’t know about and will have to validate later with her mum (like one of the mother-in-laws wearing a purple two-piece suit at his wedding).

Les tells me that he has been spending time with a lovely lady, she used to be a teacher when she had her Earth life.   The hairs go up on my friends’ arm, “that’s Bronte!  She was our neighbour and friend, died last year, she used to be a teacher!”, “well, they have been dancing today, she is just putting her tap shoes back in the holder!” I say, as I can see this clearly.

My eyes are normally closed as I connect and talk to Les, I quickly open them for a flash and gasp in surprise.  There, across the street, my elderly neighbor has decided now is a good time to open up the blinds, stand completely naked at the window and say hello to the world!  I am beside myself with laughter, now my friend is looking and she is in hysterics, the old man is even flexing his muscles in front on the mirror!  “I can’t unsee that vision!” I say to my friend, then, “Sorry Les!” as I realise that seeing this vision has thrown me off track completely, but my friend assures me that Les would find this incredibly funny and she wouldn’t be surprised if he drew my attention to it on purpose!

After we compose ourselves, I get back to connecting to Les.  He starts to talk about Australia and the wild fires and the hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of animals that have entered into the astral realm (afterlife) since the fires broke out.  He says he sees so many animals and they are tamer than on Earth, for example, if he sees a beautiful lizard just sitting on the wall, he can stroke it no problem.

“Hundreds of thousands of animals have passed over to here, and Derek Acorah!” said Les to me, and I break out into an even bigger laugh, Les clearly had a dry sense of humor (my friend confirms this!).

When Les starts to focus on my friend’s mum (still living), suddenly my little treatment room is filled with the smell of baking cakes.  “What are you cooking downstairs?” says my friend, “Nothing?  Where is that smell coming from, can you go and check?” I ask, even I (with a terrible sense of smell) can smell the baking, however, my friend confirms it’s not coming from outside and the smell is contained in the room.  She said that her dad really loved her mums home baking and we both confirmed that is what the smell was, which disappeared once we acknowledged it.

Just before it was time for Les to go, I asked for a message for my friend.  Les showed me a vision from Royalty, someone sitting at a throne with an orb and red velvet cloth.  I described this to my friend and I asked her if it meant anything to her?  She was so excited, “Yes!  Just before I got here, I just entered a competition to visit Hampton Court Palace and for an overnight stay with a friend, I’m trying to win it for me and you to go!”, “Well, he is saying you will win something this year, hopefully that’s it!”.  Les is very good at giving gifts to my friend.  Since he passed, she has won two holidays, countless days out and other material things, I’m absolutely certain these are gifts from father to daughter.

I felt so engerised after my reading with Les, let’s hope the next readings with others are as strong as that and let’s hope my naked neighbor doesn’t make another appearance!

Until next time,
